in the city of san francisco. and i really hope that we are not going to meet together and just we could settle that quietly. i will try to make my point and be successful in that. back in 94, there was medallions, they were created sort of for the disabled community and i think that it was the right step. it started with a very small number and then expanded up to 100. and, the task was to serve wheelchair-bound people and give them a priority, so to speak, when there is a choice for the cab driver who to pick up, the wheelchair customer obviously would go first. back, this is the taxi cab, regulations dated back to 2000. and throughout all regulations, that consumed ramp or wheelchair accessible minivans it said, if available from the services, it is desirable to have the wheelchair pick ups, that was back in 2000. it was... this number three wheelchair pick up was adopted way back then because we did not have in san francisco, an entire mini fleet that could deal and pick up those wheel-chair bound users, there was not that many vehicles in san francisco city that served the community

in san francisco city that served the community. and there was a lot of changes since then, the 100 wheelchair capable taxi cabs, and every single muni bus is adopable or available, or able to pick up those wheelchair people beside hundreds and hundreds of dollars, buses that serve the community, my point here is when san francisco city took over in 2009 from the taxi commission, a lot of things changed. no umbudsman that insists between the city and which is huge on its own, and when sfmt came out with the draft or memorandum back at the end of 2011, i immediately expressed my opinion about that to the sfmtstaff saying that this is just illogical, you can't regulate something which is random. taxi cab van, even though it is a van is not a bus that has a certain route and has a schedule given to the driver who to pick up and what time. i know this vehicle from inside out and i sit to it and i sit next to it and i often accept those phone calls and i monitor what is going on and i also drive. and i mean this is a random job, based upon many factors, the experience, the qualification
